LOURDES LOPEZ / ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Imagining ‘New Work’ with Justin Peck

When emerging choreographer and New York City Ballet dancer Justin Peck received a call from Artistic Director Lourdes Lopez to create a new work on Miami City Ballet, he jumped at the opportunity.  After choreographing several works for New York City Ballet, the young artist was eager to experience a new company, or as Justin described, “work with new paint.”  For nearly two weeks, Justin immersed himself in music, dance and creation at our studios to choreograph his newest work Chutes and Ladders.  Learn about Justin’s experience working with our dancers and how this exciting project came to be in the video below!

Read more about Justin Peck’s new work in The Miami Herald.  Also, here is an interesting interview with Justin in TimeOut New York.

Here are some pics from Justin’s visit!

    I am stuck up here in Philadelphia and I won’t get to see your gorgeous company this year at all, it looks like. When I am in Florida during your season, one of the highlights of my visit is any chance I get to see MCB.
    Please provide more videos like this in your E-mails to me. I love them more than I can say.

    I love your company.
